    A rumble in my town . . . .

    So the patrol car I was assigned in January has a Rumbler siren thingy on it. Kinda neat - makes a cool noise when you're clearing intersections and such. But I don't know what the hell one looks like.

    After a call, I'm driving down the road and hear a sound like something's dragging. I figure it's the car in front of me and back off to see what it is he's dragging down the road. The sound stays the same, so I figure out it's me. I try to find a place to pull over and hear a thud and I hit something.

    I stop, get out, and see what looks like a small black R2D2 on the road. It kinda looks like a speaker, and it's mangled. I test my siren - works fine. Test my PA - works great. Test the rumbler. Works fine. What the hell?

    Took four of us about 15 minutes of looking at other cars that it was one of two speakers on the rumbler. But with just one it sounds fine. So I throw it in the floorboard, I'll finish the shift and put it down at the garage tomorrow.

    Never hit anything - damned thing just fell off. Anyway - was entertaining for me to be driving around and have shit fall off my car. But at least now I know the rumbler will work with just one speaker.

    Man, I am beginning to think you could break anything!

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    When I was a teenager, I was placed in a round rubber room with a straight jacket on. They placed two 2" diameter steel balls in the middle of the room, and left for 5 minutes. When they came back, I had lost one and broken the other.

    SPD's Lawbook...hmm. Could push old Murph aside. Based on your past stories this would be a best seller.

    I'd buy a copy for both of my friends.
